Our Pelicans Have Landed!

So there was a mix-up at theInternational Bird Rescue Research Center, andour pelicans couldn’t be found. Turned out they had holed up in the back of the pelican pen and were discussing the world’s affairs over merlot and M&Ms, hitting F5 on the crack van and one of them might or might not have started a dice game with some finches. When asked about it, he muttered something about “punch3 kitten chainsaw” and flapped off. Kids today.

In any case, the birds we adopted as a blog, way back in the early days of the BP Oil Spill, were located, tagged, and we have now been presented with evidence they exist:


All our pelicans are here: LaDonna, Ashley, UncleSamRocks, FYYFF and Albert Lambreaux. And we even have pictures of the cute little buggers:


FYYFF looks just like his namesake.

Well done, everyone.

  6. Athenae says:

    Virgo, it looks like Fort Baker, Santa Cruz and Tomales Bay according to the notes on the certificates. It looks like we have some pelicans flying around California annoying the tourists on our behalf.

    I suddenly have a mental picture of one of the FD pelicans doing a Nigel in “Finding Nemo” to a bunch of seagulls someplace: “Will you just SHUUUT UUUP? You’re RATS with WINGS!”

    Now if there is anyone in the South WI area looking for a very friendly and wonderfully loving cat…I had to take a stray that’s been hanging by our house for a few weeks to the Humane Society. He’s gonna need a home so email me if you’re interested.
